It’s hard to find cute children’s clothing that isn’t part of a mass retailer. Thankfully, there are still independent children’s clothing stores in D.C. that provide some wonderful clothing options and personal customer service. Here are some of your best bets for kids clothing in Washington, D.C.

Pam K. Bambini Children’s Boutique
3301 New Mexico Ave
Washington, DC 20016
(202) 244-4141

Customers rave about the clothing selection and personalized service they get when they shop at Pam K’s. It’s also a great place to go if you’re looking for a fun and unique baby shower gift.  There’s a toy store in the back so you can do some one-stop shopping for both toys and clothes.  Unfortunately Pam K. Bambini Children’s Boutique is not within walking distance of a Metro station, but free parking is available behind the store on Saturdays. The store is closed on Sunday.

Full of Beans
3813 Livingston St NW
Washington, DC 20015
(202) 362-8566

It’s safe to say that Full of Beans knows their stuff after opening up shop 28 years ago. A lot of their clothing is handmade in the USA. Full of Beans is within walking distance of the Friendship Heights Metro station and is open seven days a week.

Wake-Up Little Suzie
3409 Connecticut Ave NW
Washington, DC 20008
(202) 244-0700

As a combination gift shop/clothing store, not only will you find great clothing for your children to wear but you’ll also find great toys and decor for children. Wake-Up Little Suzie also sells handmade jewelry so you can peruse for yourself while shopping for your children. As an added bonus, it’s located just a block from the Cleveland Park Metro station and is open seven days a week.

Dawn Price Baby
3112 M St NW
Washington, DC
(202) 333-3939 20007

325 7th Street SE
Washington, DC 20003
(202) 543-2920

With two locations in D.C. (one in Georgetown and the other in the Capitol Hill area), the draw for Dawn Price Baby is that it also offers baby furniture and strollers in addition to baby clothing. The Capitol Hill store is located close to the Eastern Market Metro station but no such luck in Georgetown where you’ll have to rely on street or garage parking. For those who are expecting, or know someone who is expecting, this chic boutique also offers a baby registry as well.  There is also an outlet offered via their website. The store is open seven days a week.

3319A Cadys Alley NW
Washington, DC 20007
(202) 333-3274

For the Georgetown set, there’s Twixt, located in the heart of Georgetown in Cadys Alley. It’s not as pricey as some of the other offerings on this list, so if you’re looking to get some great children’s clothing without spending a bundle, this may be the store for you. You’ll have to rely on street or garage parking if you’re driving to the store.
